Royals designated OF Carlos Peguero for assignment.

The move clears a spot for the newly-claimed Patrick Schuster on the 40-man roster. Peguero was acquired from the Mariners in late January, but he could now be on the move once again.
Mar 25 - 2:22 PM

Carlos Peguero blasted a solo home run on Sunday, helping to lead the Royals to a 9-6 victory over the Padres in Cactus League play.

The 27-year-old outfielder finished the day 2-for-3. He's had a very nice spring, slashing .348/.483/.522 through 29 plate appearances, but is still a longshot to crack the Royals Opening Day roster.

Royals acquired OF Carlos Peguero from the Mariners for cash considerations.

Peguero was designated for assignment by the Mariners earlier this month. The 26-year-old outfielder has shown some power potential in the minors, but he owns a .195/.242/.380 batting line over 219 plate appearances in the majors. He'll go into spring training out of options.

Mariners designated OF Carlos Peguero for assignment.

The move clears room for the newly-signed John Buck on the 40-man roster. Peguero, who turns 27 next month, owns a .195/.242/.380 batting line over 219 plate appearances in the majors and regressed in Triple-A last year.
Jan 16 - 5:43 PM

Mariners optioned OF Carlos Peguero to Triple-A Tacoma.

He was sent down to make room for Michael Saunders' return from the disabled list. Peguero went 2-for-6 with a homer and a stolen base in his brief stint with the big club.

Mariners recalled OF Carlos Peguero from Triple-A Tacoma.

Peguero is filling in for Franklin Gutierrez, who was placed on the disabled list Tuesday with a right hamstring strain. The 26-year-old is not fantasy-relevant.

Carlos Peguero is not in the lineup for Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday night.

With Franklin Gutierrez (hamstring) expected to be placed on the disabled list, the assumption is that Peguero will replace him on the active roster. The 26-year-old owns an underwhelming .191/.236/.367 batting line over 212 plate appearances in the majors, so he can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Tue, Apr 23, 2013 02:37:00 PM

Mariners optioned OF Carlos Peguero to Triple-A Tacoma; reassigned RHP Carson Smith and INF Nick Franklin to minor league camp.

None of them had a real shot at earning an Opening Day roster spot, though Peguero made it hard on them by batting .341 with three homers. He'll be up at some point this season.

Carlos Peguero went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in Friday's win over the Rangers.

He also made a pair of excellent catches in the field. Peguero is now hitting .462 (6-for-11) with three home runs and four RBI through his first six games this spring. The Mariners' outfield will likely be too crowded for him to make the Opening Day roster, but he's at least doing his best to stay in the team's plans.

Carlos Peguero smashed a two-run double in a losing effort against the Blue Jays on Thursday night in Toronto.

He finished the night 1-for-4. He’s now hitting a highly disappointing .176/.192/.373 with two homers and seven RBI. Peguero’s downfall continues to be his inability to make consistent contact, racking up 25 strikeouts in his 52 at-bats on the year.

Getting his first start since his recall, Carlos Peguero went 2-for-3 and a homer Sunday versus the Angels.

The Mariners will have plenty of outfielders to give at-bats to this month, so it seems unlikely that Peguero will have any fantasy value. He entered the day as a .143/.163/.286 hitter with 23 strikeouts in 42 at-bats this season.

Mariners recalled OF Carlos Peguero from Triple-A Tacoma.

The powerful left-handed hitter slashed a meager .146/.167/.293 with one homer and three RBI in 41 at-bats with the Mariners earlier in the season. He also whiffed an astounding 22 times in the process. The power is certainly real, but Peguero will need to learn how to make consistent contact before he's a factor in fantasy leagues.

Mariners optioned OF Carlos Peguero to Triple-A Tacoma.

He's making room for the arrival of Eric Thames. Peguero batted just .146/.167/.293 in 12 games for the M's.
Tue, Jul 31, 2012 07:38:00 PM

Carlos Peguero went 0-for-3 and struck out twice after replacing Ichiro Suzuki in right field for the Mariners on Monday.

After 24 at-bats, Peguero has five hits and 12 strikeouts. We wouldn't expect that ratio to change much if the Mariners intend to play him regularly in Ichiro's spot. He just doesn't make enough contact to be an asset.
